Aeropuertos Españoles y Navegación Aérea (Aena), which handles more passengers than any other airport operator in the world, is using software from the British developer Cadcorp to manage geographic information about its extensive infrastructure of airports and radio masts.    Press Release, Stevenage, 10 May 2013.

Any authorised user can now visualise, add and modify cartographic and infrastructural data, from Aena premises that include both airports and radio mast installations.

The application called “SIGNA” by Aena, is the start of a wider GIS project for intranet GIS, first specified by the Aeronautic Information Service (AIS) in Aena in 2009. The project aim was to bring together the range of geographic data built up over the years by Aena into a single web server,in order to serve any user requesting this information.

The application has been developed by Cadcorp partner Recursos Técnicos Madrid, S.L. under Aena’s specifications, and in collaboration with the contractor Topografía y Obras, S.A. (TYOSA). TYOSA was responsible for surveying and field data collection over a three year period. In parallel, RTM working with the staff of Aena, assumed the responsibility for application development. This included designing the software user interface, and maintaining connectivity with a central spatial database “Ingena”. All maps and surveying data held in Ingena can now be accessed through Internet Explorer® over Aena

AENA network

RTM was tasked with migrating the Ingena database from Oracle® to Microsoft SQL Server®, while at the same time developing the graphic client application that would access the database. The task was complicated by the requirement for the application to accommodate new records as the TYOSA survey team created them, as Mr. Hacar in charge of the project from RTM’s side, explains:“The integration with database records is done in real time and updated and coordinated by means of a Maintenance application we have developed for the Ingena database. It takes advantage of one of the strengths of Cadcorp technology by being able to upload all available maps – in both vector and raster formats – in their native format. We are able to add 2D and 3D vector maps in formats such as DGN, DWG and SHP, without any modifications. We are also managing orthophotos as very large raster files, again without problems.““We congratulate RTM on the success of this prestigious project” commented Mike O’Neil, CEO of Cadcorp. “They have shown the value of treating spatial information is a generic and shared resource that organisations can put to work in support of different business activities.”.

RTM Simplifies IGN’s Data Transformation with FME

Recursos Técnicos Madrid, S.L. (RTM) has served the National Geographic Institute of Spain (IGN) with functionality that added to the FME Universal Format Converter, optimize and greatly simplify the process of transforming data to the specific model of INSPIRE.

These features together with FME Oracle applications such as FME Workbench, FME Quick Translator, FME Universal Viewer and others, as well as new functionality to Inspire are currently served by RTM.
“The Inspire Directive establishes a spatial data infrastructure in the European Union, and urges Member States to establish and manage a network of spatial data services which include, among others, visualization services.

“The National Geographic Institute has initiated and undertaken the transformation of its services in INSPIRE services. Changes largely marked by European legislation and its transposition into Spanish, including the use of open source tools in the development of permits. “

These are the components that make up the application that solves the transformation to adapt IGN maps to work on FME INSPIRE rules:

  • Process Template for FME Workbench
  • Tutorial with examples of mapping processes FME Workbench
  • Help spread the FME Workbench integrated with specific information for INSPIRE
  • Access to current INSPIRE specifications directly from FME Workbench
  • More than 100 additional tools (“FME Transformer)” to support the mapping schema
  • INSPIRE: Creating specific attributes and values.

IGN says: “Although the initial intention was to work with free software tools, it became necessary to use FME tools to migrate data from Oracle and generation shader model based MDT25.”

Spanish airport operator Aena rolls out corporate GIS based on Cadcorp technology

First Bentley ContextCapture Workshop in Madrid, Spain

Hosted by Bentley Partner, RECURSOS TECNICOS MADRID, S.L. (RTM), (www.rtm.es) and sponsored by Bentley Systems, the first Bentley ContextCapture workshop took place in Madrid on April 21st at the Holiday Inn Hotel close to the Madrid Río.

The workshop was attended by companies, institutions and professionals of the many different industries that are aided and  interested in photogrammetry software that produces high resolution 3D models from aerial photographs taken by digital cameras either on land, UAVs or manned aircraft.

The attendees were very impressed with the practical presentations of examples already conducted and could follow the whole teaching process through exercises already provided by RTM in their laptops. They mentioned that the event was very friendly with easy to learn and to follow contents of the workshop. Some of the attendees came from various parts of Spain like Toledo, Catalunya, Basque Country, Galicia, Madrid, even Balearic Islands and kept very attentive along the whole workshop. They found the applications really interesting with a high potential use for a great variety of projects, soon to be undertaken shortly by companies, institutions, and professionals.

The software is ideally suited for any organization that could apply 3D models of real-world context to benefit infrastructure design, construction, or operations.

With ContextCapture, you can produce even the largest and most challenging 3D models of existing real-world conditions, including scales as large as entire cities, from simple photographs. The software generates a detailed and accurate reality mesh incorporating the referenced photography and textures. This results in a navigable 3D model with fine photographic realistic detail, sharp edges, and precise geometric accuracy. These highly detailed models can be of virtually any size or resolution, up to city scale, and created much more quickly than with other technologies.

With ContextCapture, you can automatically construct highly detailed 3D models of virtually any size for your clients, faster and at much less cost than with traditional methods. But what is most powerful is the amazing context that it provides to facilitate better decisions throughout design, construction, and operations. ContextCapture allows you to create a fully photo-textured, geographically located 3D model, all derived directly from digital photography. And, once the models have been built, they can be quickly and easily viewed on any desktop or mobile device with the necessary hardware requirements. Surely ContextCapture is going to change the geospatial industry in a very near future. Ver artículo

     Carmen Bermejo handing certificate to one of the presenters.May 31 2011 – The First FME 2011 User Seminar took place in the premises of Colegio de Ingenieros Técnicos Agrícolas de Centro, Madrid (España).Sponsored by RECURSOS TÉCNICOS MADRID, S.L. (RTM), SAFE SOFTWARE’S dealer, RTM has been a pioneer in providing the FME technology to Spain since 2000. The great majority of licenses have been installed the Spanish Central and Regional Government authorities in and also to many private GIS and organisations were translation of spatial data formats are a necessary requirement.FME (Feature Manipulation Engine) is the tool to collect data with ETL (Extract, Transform and Load) used to manage spatial data, either within the desktop or used within a server envirnonments. Over 265 Formats GIS, CAD, vector, raster and database are translated and delivered in accordance to the user requests. Few formats are not covered by FME. It is within SAFE policy to increase the number of them every year. Together with RTM’s team (Carmen Bermejo, Miguel A. Hacar, Miguel Bodalo and Marta Hacar) the Seminar had the presence of Ken Bragg SAFE Software’s expert in FME Server who was available to answer as many questions as the attendees wanted to ask.

GitHub: A Collaborative Tool Serving Geographic Information

The Sección de SIG y Cartogografía of Rioja Government (Spain) has started using a geographic Information application in GitHub, in order to ease the use of its geographic data base with the advantages from a version control system, thus creating a collaboration frame for social cartography. A project in IDERioja that daily updates the geographic changes recorded in the GitHub repository, provides the ability to extract and transform Oracle Spatial data to the Spatial format GeoJSON and loading it onto GitHub. For this, Safe Software’s FME has been used.

Every day different ways to geographic Information are opened with the intention to cover new needs that arise with very different views of conventional cartography. The “Git” version control is an example widely used by code developers. The public platform GitHub has been one of the first Git systems offering support for the management of geographic Information. Available since a few months ago it provides a native geographic viewer for GeoJSON and a geographic editor online.

Being aware of the chances that this formula offers to many users, the Rioja Government  (Spain) has started with a geographic Information application in GitHub, in order to ease its geographic data base using the advantages that are coming from a version control System, thus creating a collaboration frame for the social cartography.

One of the most interesting features in a version control System like Git is the possibility to store the historical changes of a file or set of files over the time frame allowing users to recover the previous stages to Information, to review modifications on a file over the time as well as to check the Information edition. Therefore it is very important to synchronize its content with the reference Geographic Data Base periodically.

In order to minimize the dedication that this task requires automating it completely, in IDERioja they have developed a Project based on (Extract-Transform-Load)  tools which daily updates the geographic changes recorded. in the GitHub repository.

Hereto Gobierno de la Rioja has used Safe Software’s FME, supplied and supported every year by the Spanish company Recursos Técnicos Madrid, S.L (4). since 2008. FME provides the ability to extract and transform Oracle Spatial data to the Spatial format GeoJSON  and loading it onto GitHub.

GitHub supports GeoJSON file viewing from its web interface and, besides an extension for the browser (Chrome), is available allowing the geographic edition trough a web interface. This makes users to contribute in a collaborative way with updates of useful information.

The design works developed to undertake this task were recently presented in the International FME User Conference taking place lately from June 10-13 in Vancouver (5) and in the FME World Tour that Safe Software organizes every year covering over 50 cities in the World.

One of the most important features offered by the public Git is the possibility to give room to citizen participation in geographic production, within the so called “CrowdMapping” movement. To approach this technology to those users with no previous experience in Git System, a short guide has been edited in order to ease the understanding of the product features and methodology.

Viajamos hasta Medellín, provincia de Badajoz, para seguir los trabajos de ortofotografía y mapeo 3D del castillo de la localidad. Estuvimos toda una jornada con Jerónimo García y su equipo de “Aereodron“ Extremadura, asistidos por Carmen Bermejo y Miguel Ángel Hacar de “Recursos Técnicos Madrid, S.L“. Miguel Ángel Hacar, Asesor Técnico de RTM nos cuenta…Ver máshttps://youtu.be/u_VdtI-dRAY

Miguel Ángel Hacar, Asesor Técnico de RTM nos cuenta los detalles del estudio realizado:

“Los fotogramas obtenidos mediante el multirrotor de la empresa Aerodron, se utilizan para crear un modelo 3D que pueda ser utilizado por las aplicaciones mas diversas entre las que se incluyen, las aplicaciones CAD, GIS y de control topográfico, dichos fotogramas han sido geo-referenciados utilizando un “rober (el GPS que se mueve) de la firma Leica, el cual recibe correcciones diferenciales RTK de otro GPS “el fijo” y en tiempo real. Los puntos del terreno así obtenidos, sirven para ajustar el modelo 3D obtenido a partir del conjunto de fotogramas al sistema general de coordenadas, las correcciones proporcionadas por el GPS-RTK Leica están en UTM, el sistema de coordenadas es  ETRS89 y las cotas son ortométricas. La precisión absoluta es de 0.10 m. y la relativa entre los puntos de 0.02 m, las cuales son incorporadas como puntos de referencia a los fotogramas. En nuestro caso, lo que más interesa es la relativa de 2 cm.,  puesto que 0.10 metros de la absoluta, es más que suficiente para “subir” todo el castillo en 3D a Google Earth y/o para crear maquetas virtuales o modelos utilizando impresora 3D (formato STL).

El modelo 3D puede servir de base para la recreación de un museo virtual, si bien en este caso, sería importante modelizar los detalles desde tierra por correlación de imágenes, y también utilizando escáneres LIDAR e incorporar al conjunto para definir los detalles desde el punto de vista del observador a pié”.
